The pandemic isn’t abating any time soon but that doesn’t mean we have lost the opportunity to pamper ourselves and feel pretty. With Singapore’s humid weather and the need to wear a mask whenever we head out, these minimalist beauty trends are a blessing in disguise to help us look good with the least discomfort and effort possible. This article will guide you through some of our favourite beauty trends.
This beauty trend is all about embracing the skin we already have and focusing on nourishing it. Instead of following the earlier trends of piling on layers of makeup, we’re going for glowy skin this year and investing in skincare that rejuvenates our faces. This means understanding our skin intimately and what it needs to make sure it is at its peak. This makes even more sense when we’ve been wearing masks so much. Masks retain bacteria and the constant rubbing against our faces can tear our skin, allowing dirt to enter our pores more easily.
Even though we might be covering our lips with our masks, a bold lip goes a long way in feeling good and in brightening up our faces when we go minimal with our makeup. Lip gloss is able to give our lips that desired glossy, pouty look for a few hours. Lip Gloss or a bold red lipstick are just some lip products we can put together despite minimal or no makeup.
The emphasis this year is to go experimental with the eyes. Think fun and bright colours on the lids especially the colour blue, which has been predicted to be the eyeshadow colour trend for the year. Celebrities have been spotted trying out this style, and it really makes your eyes pop with the mask on.
A pouty, bold lip and minimalist, glowing skin are always a trendsetter no matter which era we live in. If you’re looking to hop on these trends but also wish for them to last longer, we have a few recommendations for you that we offer at Cambridge Medical to help you get on the trendsetting train.
A needleless lip plumping treatment, Fotona Liplase allows for a fuller, natural appearance of the lips through collagen regeneration. Though the results are similar to a lip filler treatment, Fotona Liplase is non-invasive and non-surgical. It will not puncture or cut your skin and there is no recovery downtime needed.
Without the use of lip fillers, this procedure works on boosting your own collagen production and synthesis to progressively give you naturally pouty, plump lips. This treatment is also fully customisable, such that the attributes of the perfect volume and fullness that you are looking for can be achieved.
This procedure works through the transmission of a single sub-second long pulse sequence where the surface tissue will stimulate new collagen production, improving the elasticity and texture within the lips in six to seven pulses. Should a deeper collagen stimulation be needed, the treatment can also be done intra-orally on the inside of the lips. This might sound painful but is entirely painless.
The benefits of the Fotona Liplase treatment:
Anyone who wishes for hydrated, fuller and lighter lips as well as those who have dull, dark or smokers lips are eligible for this treatment. We would recommend consulting with Dr Lee before going for this treatment to be on the safer side.
This treatment uses Kinetic Energy to tighten and rejuvenate the face, helping to improve facial skin laxity and skin elasticity through the form of a mini facelift. The Air Jet Facelift is a procedure that is minimally invasive and does not use any thermal heat. Instead, it targets deep into the layers of your skin in order to aid the rejuvenation of the face, tightens excess skin and helps reverse the ageing process. It is also highly effective in wrinkle removal and eradicating fine lines.
This treatment works to boost collagen and increase the skin dermis layer. There is no direct contact, needles or surgery involved during this treatment and the energy used during the treatment is directed into the target tissue using a dispersion technique.
The Benefits of the Air Jet Facelift treatment:
Clients between their mid-20’s to their 40’s as well as those with thin and soft skin are eligible for this treatment. We would recommend consulting with Dr Lee before going for the treatment to be on the safer side.
Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is a revolutionary non-surgical laser procedure designed to help patients lift sagging skin while strengthening the skin tone and facial texture. This treatment allows you to have a sharp and firm V-shaped jawline - giving you a youthful appearance.
Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is a 4-step laser technology that uses 2 different wavelengths as well as a combination of 4 lasers to produce your desired results. These different lasers target different parts of the skin and face to encourage the production of collagen and the stimulation of fibres while reducing imperfections such as fine lines, uneven skin tone and loss of volume.
The Benefits of the Fotona 4D Laser Facelift treatment:
Unlike other procedures, this treatment might cause your skin to turn red and sensitive when exposed to the sun so we would recommend wearing sunscreen daily and avoiding long exposures to the sun when heading out. The recovery period for this treatment depends on each individual but eventually, this treatment will help to restore the natural elastin and collagen to the skin.
Those who have sagging skin and are troubled by the signs of ageing, loss of skin firmness and skin laxity, and uneven skin tone and texture are eligible for this treatment. We would recommend consulting with Dr Lee before making an appointment to be on the safer side.
There are always plenty of beauty trends to hop onto but finding out what is best for you, in the long run, is far more important. Like all types of trends, they don’t stay for long but luckily, 2021’s trends seem to be catered more towards long-term care for our skin and lips which is great news for those of us seeking to ease ourselves into more perennial skin habits.
With the pandemic continuing on indefinitely, our last recommendation would be to lay the groundwork for the foundations you wish to accentuate such as the skin or the lips with daily habits and then try out the different trends for other parts of your face like your hair or eyelids. This will help you in the future to ensure your skin looks amazing while still being allowed to try the different trends that come and go.
